I am posting this salsa because my son-in-law (Dan) really , really liked it. Now if I can create something Dan and Julie cannot stop eating, its a winner. Its simple to make and healthy, so get your bullet, blender or vita mix out and lets make salsa.
1 14.5 ounce can of Organic Diced Tomatoes
1 14.5 ounce can of Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes
1 4 ounce can of green chiles
1/2 Cup Chopped Cilantro
1/4 Cup Diced Chives
1/2 Cup Chopped Purple Onion (yellow or white is fine also)
1 Tablespoon Garlic
1 Tablespoon Cumin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt (your preference)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 fresh squeezed lemon or lime (what ever you have on hand works)
1/2 Cup Chopped red bell pepper
2 Quart mixing bowl
Place 1 of the cans of tomatoes into your blender, bullet or vita-mix. Add 1/2 of all of the remaining ingredients and all of the garlic into your preferred mixing vessel and blend. I don’t puree the mixture, I like to leave a little chunky. Add all of the blended mixture to a 2 quart bowl with the remaining 1/2 of the ingredients, stir to blend. If you want your salsa really chunky then mix all of the ingredients into a 2 quart bowl. Its really good and ready to eat admittedly, but tomorrow its even better. My family had a hard time waiting until tomorrow, hope you enjoy.
Makes 1 Quart
Disclaimer: I am sure there are a lot of salsa recipes on the web, this is my original recipe I have been making for years, handed down to me by my Aunt Lorene, who taught me how to cook from scratch.
